    it actually has nothing to do with nazi ideology...the swastika is a very pervasive symbol used throughout history by many cultures. and the skull and cross bones is a pirate symbol, representative of the brand's interpretation of youth fashion and the ability to enjoy fashion freely and without rules (hence the dubbing Contemporary Pirate2) edit: or we could take it as japo-fascist propaganda and boycott ln-cc leaving all the rest of the dries, ann, dd, etc, stock for me to plunder at will

    This thread leads to only one logical conclusion... SW&D Fit contest: WAYWT for Z-day?

    it's not a skull and cross bones, it's the symbol of the ss totenkopf division

    If it was just one or the other, might be cool, but the skull , swastika, and 88 jersey together is pretty bad vibes

    Quick PSA for those of you that don't know: 8 stands for H (the eighth letter of the alphabet) so 88 Stands for HH which stands for Heil Hitler apparently. Like, i'm not even joking.

    Its the swastikas combined with the skull and cross-bones, as well as the 88 jersey (88= HH= Hiel Hitler) A little too much to be 'innocent', imo, but who knows? Either way, I can see why people might be offended.

    Yeah, both the swastika and the totenkopf predate the nazi regime so they might have been able to get away with it but the 88 kinda seals the deal.

    Weren't they selling Totenkopf stuff at wal mart a few years back?

    Also '88' is on every fourth piece of chinese clothing anyway. And every fifth bar.
